22. With Thy Needle & Thread January Wordplay

Stitched over 1 on 32 count Star Sapphire linen

January Wordplay by With Thy Needle & Thread's Brenda Gervais.
Once again I changed several of the colours to co-ordinate with the pale blue fabric.  I made the little birds into cardinals too.

21. Mill Hill Frosted Heather Rose

Stitched on 28 count evenweave.
This is a Mill Hill beaded sampler called Frosted Heather Rose.  I won it in a giveaway organised by Rosey of Ishkabibble.  
This is a nice quick stitch, provided you can set up your area in such a way that you won't be disturbed for a few hours!  It is easier to bead as you go too.

I even had the perfect frame in my stash too.

19. Joan Elliott Believe

Stitched on 28 count Robin's Egg opalescent evenweave from Silkweavers

One of a series of four words from Joan Elliott's book Bewitching Cross Stitch.
I changed one fairy into a boy fairy as there are both boys and girls in the class.

This is intended as a gift for my younger son's Year 1 teaching staff.

Hope can be found here.
